Periodical Directory: 1890 - 1922

This list is a work in progress, and we invite all those interested to help us improve it. It is intended to provide basic information about all the English-language magazines of literary and artistic interest operating during the period from 1890 to 1922. We stop at 1922 for copyright reasons, with the intellectual justification that we are interested in the rise of modernism, which may be considered complete by that date.

The list may be downloaded or used in any way scholars and students of modernism wish to use it. But we have a specific project in mind for those who are in a position to assist us. The MJP exists mainly to provide digital editions of magazines from this period, with full editorial support. To that end, we have indicated on this list the journals we consider most suitable for digitization (in red type), and others that we consider interesting but would put second in order of priority (in blue type). Journals in purple type are those we have already digitized (wholly or partly); these journals can be found on our Journals page—or you can can reach them by clicking on the purple titles below.

If you would like to help, we ask that you look through the list and do the following three things with it:

  1. Send us additions, corrections, and anything else that will help us improve this list and make it more useful to scholars and students.
  2. Tell us whether you agree with our priorities or would suggest changes.
  3. Look in your own libraries for original issues of the magazines given priority on this list and let us know if you find any.

We work with cooperating libraries in making our editions, and we will be happy to work with yours, if they have original issues of a journal of interest. Remember, please, that we cannot consider journals published after 1922, though we can consider a partial run up to that year. Please send suggestions and information to: MJP_Project_Manager@brown.edu

Besides working only with original issues (i.e., not reprints) published before 1923, the MJP is committed to using only copies of journals that have their original advertising intact. Since stripping out the advertising was a common practice when libraries originally bound the magazines into volumes, locating cover-to-cover issues can be a challenge. To meet that challenge, we've set up a separate set of web pages, called the Cover-to-Cover Initiative, devoted to locating libraries with cover-to-cover issues of twenty magazines that we're specially interested in. We encourage you to visit that site as well, and to contribute information about your library's holdings for the listed journals.

A note about our subject matter and sources: Mass magazines begin at the end of the nineteenth century. Little magazines appear in reaction to them. Earlier magazines are usually classified on our list as "inter" for intermediate. We have not included some highly specialized magazines (like The Dickensian) in our list. Sources consulted in compiling the periodical directory include Frank Luther Mott's A History of American Magazines (all five volumes); Theodore Peterson's Magazines in the Twentieth Century; Frederick Hoffman, Charles Allen, and Carolyn Ulrich's The Little Magazine; Alvin Sullivan's British Literary Magazines, volumes 3 (1837-1913) and 4 (1914-1984); Edward Chielens's American Literary Magazines: The Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries as well as his American Literary Magazines: The Twentieth Century and The Literary Journal in America, 1900-1950; and Michael Ashley's The Age of the Storytellers: British Popular Fiction Magazines, 1880-1950. We have also received considerable help from Brad Evans at Rutgers, who has added a large number of very small magazines (bibelots) to this list. We hope others will follow Brad's example and send us information about journals published during our time period (1890-1922) that we can add to this list.

In the list below, you can sort the magazine data, in ascending or descending order, by clicking on any of the seven categories at the top.
